of the united states. thanks, fellows, for joining us. earlier, i asked you what you thought. who's a bigger threat to health care reform. 83% said conservative democrats. i'm going to hammer them on this show every night. 17% think the town hall screamers are going to actually have an effect. the conservative democrats, i got now in my cross hairs when it comes to cross hairs. you're wrong, you've got to support the president on a public option. that's it. see you tomorrow. have a great one. >>> rage against the machine. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm lawrence o'donnell in new york in tonight for chris matthews. leading off tonight, face-off. we now know how to get your name and picture on the front page "the new york times." say something loud and nasty to a senator and they'll put you above the fold. if there is one lesson we've learned from all the angry health care town hall meetings, it is that it's a lot easier to get a crowd of people who are opposed to reform than a crowd in favor. the big question is how many of these noisy opponents have been organized into position

"newsweek" investigative reporter michaelis cough will break it down for us, and how did the white house and the democrats get the strategy for justice sonia sotomayor's confirmation vote so right but drop the ball when it came to the message war over health care reform? and finally, president obama awarded the presidential medal of freedom to 16 recipients today, among them senator ted kennedy, sid no poitier, billie jean king and archbishop desmond tootoo of south africa wa. we begin
